In other news... I got a Women's World magazine at the checkout with the luring title: Amazing Body Wrap will make you THINNER TONIGHT! Wrap off 30" in 60 minuts! That 30 inces is NOT a typo! LOL

I peed, then weighed, did all my measurements pre-wrap. I followed everything to the "T." Results: Absolutely no change in inches but I did lose a solid pound in weight on the scale (I did pee big-time after it was all done however my hair was wet). So- don't waste your money on the wraps to lose weight or inches. Do it because it is fun and your skin will feel oh so soft! P.S. Didn't do one thing for my cellulite either

Back to my pre- trip weight. YAY! I LOVE CALP!!!!
Having corned beef, coleslaw, salad and maybe 1/2 roll for RM tonight.
DH has been eating less carbs, just haven't had as much in the house- of course he lost 4lbs! He is fine with that and I'm continuing to have less snacks/desserts for him in the house.

Going out to dinner tomorrow- my friends are picking-
then?

I have great plans for New Years Eve- 2 couples are coming over adn I'm making lots of appetizers- all LC (smoked salmon, caviar, cheeses, olives) and then dinner. One friend is bringing dessert, one champagne. Dinner is chicken breasts, roasted squash and sauteed mushrooms and a salad.
Low key but fun -
how about your plans?

I am not 100% sure yet what we are doing. Maybe just us, or a family member might come over, maybe we'll invite someone.

I know we'll have wine (we make our own) so it will be an occaision to sample some. I too am thinking a bunch of low carb treats to go with the RM. Not sure yet on the menu. Hubby really likes the mashed cauliflower so we will do that as our extra veggie.

223 this morning on the scale! I think I've busted past holding at 224-225 for the last 3 weeks or so!

Ok, I am doing this post as an example of why the Heller's recommend the daily wts and weekly avg to track weight loss. Today was the first day I sat down and really did the average. So far I have just been going by "pounds lost total" since starting and not really seeing the week to week results and thought I'd share this.

I started November 1st and still have 2 more days to avg in for this week but basically I am in this now a full 8 weeks. In the beginning I did not weigh and record daily so you will see I go by the average based off the info I did record.

Week 1- 235

Week 2- 231 229 (-5 lbs)

Week 3- 228 (-1 lb)

Week 4- 227 226 (-1.5 lbs)

Week 5- 225 227 228 225 (-0.25 lbs)

Week 6- 225 225 225.5 225.5 225 224 223.5 (-1.5 lbs)

Week 7- 224 224 224 224 224 223 (-1 lb)

Week 8- 224 225 224.5 224.5 224 224 224 (+ 0.5 lb)

Week 9- 222 224 225 222.5 223 (-1 lb)



So you can see other than that one "blip" of a 1/2 lb gain, I have been consistently losing! This really does work

I also posted my measurements before:

20 days in to it I lost 2 in off my bust, 2.5 in off my waist, 2.5 in off my hips, 1 in off my thighs, biceps no change.

30 days in to it I lost another inch off my waist for a total of 3.5 inches, another 1/2 inch off my hips for a total of 3 inches, and 1/2 inch off my biceps.

54 days in no changes except I lost another half inch off my biceps for a total of 1 inch lost.

Do both weight and measurements to keep track so you won't get discouraged!

Today in 8 weeks overall I am averaging 1.5 lbs a week in loss (down 12 lbs), I am down a whopping 3.5 inches off my waist (very minimal exercising almost non-existant compared to my normal routines).

P.S.- remember the gal I met at Winter Solstice breakfast who lost 80 pounds in the last 18 months? That is an average weight loss of 6.66 lbs a month lost and 1.33 lbs per week

I pulled this from the "Show all data" portion of my ticker factory tracker. Going back to the beginning it is very neat to see the continuous slow cycle down to the present. Fingers crossed this continues!

BTW, cabbage is now my new favorite veggie. I have always liked it but we have been eating it once or twice a day with the left over Christmas ham. I love the ham diced and cooked with scrambled eggs, then sauteed with cabbage. Makes a wonderful filling and satisfying CM or RM main.

Default Plan for New Years Eve and New Years Day

I am going to work in a couple of new recipes (I have many stacked up waiting for me to try and then keep or toss) and thought I'd share them here, in case anyone needs something new and yummy to help stay on plan.

Cumber Feta Rolls - www.goodlifeeats.com
2 cucumbers
6 ounces crumbled feta
3 tablespoons Greek yogurt
2 1/2 - 3 1/2 tablespoons finely diced sundried tomatoes or red bell pepper
8 - 12 pitted kalamata olives, roughly chopped
1 tablespoon roughly chopped dill or oregano
2 teaspoons lemon juice
pinch of pepper, or to taste

Directions:

Thinly slice the cucumbers longways on a mandoline at a 2mm thick setting. Alternatively, you can use a vegetable peeler if you do not have a mandoline. Lay the cucumbers on top of a paper towel lined cutting board while you prepare the filling.

Add the feta and yogurt to a medium bowl. Mash to combine using a fork. Add the bell pepper or sun dried tomatoes, olives, dill, lemon, and pepper to the bowl. Stir well to combine. In a bowl, mash the feta using a fork.

Place 1 - 2 teaspoons of mixture at one end of a cucumber strip and roll up. Secure with a toothpick. Repeat with remaining strips. If not serving immediately, chill until ready to serve.

adapted from Taste.com.au

Wanted to post recipe as is however, I will not be using yogurt, but mixing the feta with sour cream, and I will use smoked red bell pepper instead of sundried tomato. I am also adding tunafish

Gluten Free, Grain Free Cheesy Garlic Cauliflower Bread Sticks
Adapted from Eat. Drink. Smile.

1 cup cooked, riced cauliflower
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1 egg, beaten
1 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp crushed garlic
1/2 tsp garlic salt
olive oil

For Topping:
2 tablespoons softened salted butter
2 cloves garlic, finely minced
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/4 cup grated mozzarella cheese
*Optional Marinara sauce for dipping


Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Chop the cauliflower florets into chunks and steam them in a steamer or on the stove until slightly soft for 15 minutes. Place in a ricer or grate.

One large head should produce approximately 3 cups of riced cauliflower. The remainder can be used to make additional pizza crusts immediately, or can be stored in the refrigerator for up to one week.

To Make the Bread:
Prepare your baking stone or sheet by spreading a small amount of olive oil on it and top with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl, stir together 1 cup cauliflower, egg, Parmesan and Mozzarella. Add oregano, crushed garlic and garlic salt, stir.
Transfer to the baking stone or sheet, and using your hands, pat out into a large rectangle.

Bake at 450 degrees for 15 minutes.
Remove from oven.

Mix 2 TBSP butter and garlic in a small bowl and.spread the butter and garlic mixture over baked cauliflower bread and top with Parmesan and Mozzarella cheeses.

Place back in the 450 degree oven until all cheese is melted.
Slice and Serve! from whatsfordinner-momwhatsfordinner blog

I will not be serving marinara sauce with this

New Years Eve - having the cheesy cauliflower bread sticks, and my recipe for sausage balls. RM will be grilled lobster and steak.

New Years Day: RM: smoking a tri-tip, having that with zucchini noodles, salad, and something carby for dessert.

During the day, snacks will be the cucumber rollups, and stuffed bacon wrapped jalapeno poppers for dh (anaheim peppers for mine), fresh herb dip with raw veggies, and maybe bacon wrapped shrimp.

Got a wee bit closer to starting my ddp yoga today - had hubby help me get the cardiac monitor set up to work (has a watch/chest strap to wear), and found where to put up the poster showing the 12 moves (think I only can't do two, due to my knees). Now..to actually put the dvds into the player..lol.

Have a wonderful end to 2012 and wonderful start to 2013! I look forward to what 2013 will bring for me as I get back to losing.

Default Happy New Year's Eve folks!

So far so good today, tonight's rm will be a ribeye and lobster (both grilled), salad - large, and something sweet for a carb.

I will most likely have 1/2 oz. wine at midnight as a planned cheat.

If I do any snacks tonight - will make the cauliflower cheesey breadsticks..right now, so full of my late cm of herb dip, sausage balls and raw veggies, I don't see me eating again after rm!

Wishing all of us a healthy, prosperous and joyous New Year.

Default Highly recommend

the cheesey garlic cauliflower 'bread sticks' recipe I posted. Both my husband and I greatly enjoyed them and have ideas for variations.

The cucumber feta rollups that I fiddled with to add tuna and substituted sour cream for the greek yogurt called for, were outstanding but the rolling up bit is more fussy than we like, so in the future this filling will go in mushroom caps or endive leaves

Here's to a tasty year of losing..think that's my additional motto for 2013

221.5 lbs today Not sure if it was going for the walk (Hubby says it was closer to 4 miles) or last day of TOM or both, but this is my best weight in a few years. SO so happy!

yesterday:

B- 1 boiled egg, 2 pc bacon, 1/4 head of cagged sauteed all together (my new favorite breakfast!) decaf coffee with cream and cinnamon

L- 3 meatballs with horseradish dipping sauce, ice berg lettuce with cream cheese roll, and 2 long pieces of celery with cream cheese.

RM- large bowl of the last of the leftover Christmas ham and gourmet bean blend soup I made (also had cabbage in it), 1/2 head of ice berg lettuce (I just cut it into quarters and ate it one crunchy bite by bite), 1 doughnut and 1 cup gingerbread ice cream. Also all my vitamins.

I need to really make sure I am getting in enough water daily. That is something I have slacked off a bit the last 3 weeks or so.

Great job! Keep up the good work!

I just found this book written by the Hellers today at the library: The Stress Eating Cure. It is fairly recent (written in 2010). Anyone read this? So far, it looks like it's the same principles but strongly suggesting eating your reward meal at breakfast (the "Big Balanced Breakfast" as they call it). I wonder if this would work any better than regular CAD/CALP? I am definitely a stress eater, so I may give it a go. But I will really miss having a regular evening meal with the family.

I haven't read the book, but calp certainly allows you to choose which meal you want as rm - can be breakfast, and I do a rm brunch at least once a month.
